African Padauk - Pterocarpus macrocarpus

Burma Padauk

Rich deep red, dense and with a fine texture and subtle figure that shows best on slab sawn faces. It is this and the Andaman specie that made padauk a valued and desirable timber.

This stock is a rare survival. It was bought from a gentleman that came by it as old stock in the mid 1950’s. The actual age of it is impossible to say. I have not seen it traded in the UK within the scope of my 35 year tenure at Timberline.

Warehouse Visitors

We take the view that it is still appropriate to ask that masks be worn in the warehouse and that customers use the hand cleanser on entry. We will also be open on the basis of a maximum of 3 customers at any one time and ask that social distancing measures still be observed. Please read the notices at the door before you come in.
